Gatty Slip: a card with 4 whole and 1 broken silver rings, found on Sibertswold Down, Kent. Formerly in the Faussett coll. Like pl. XI, fig. 15, 20, 21 of the Inven. Sep. Silver wire ring, ends tapered and fastened in wide set single twisted knots. Max diam. 1.4cm. Inv. Sep. pl. xi, 15?? (Kingston?)Silver wire ring, ends tapering and fastened in wide double twist knots. Max. diam. 1.5cm. Inv. Sep. pl. xi, 20?? (Kingston)At the National Museums Liverpool, grouped in a box labeled Sibertswold M 6551, are 4 (3 complete, one fragmentary) rings, One is marked Sibertswold 180 and the fragmentary one marked Kingston Down 250 (re-assigned to accession number M 6346), both of which appear to be copper-alloy rings. The remaining two appear to be white metal, assigned on the basis of the Gatty Slip to Sibertswold dis-associated material. The Kingston Down attribution is based Faussett 1856 plate index for XI.15 & 20 and therefore a weak attribution based on look-alike rings. – D.H. & B.B.
